December 6, 1923

A secret printing plant, said to have been operated by Fascistic, has been discovered by the police, says a report from Jassy. Anti-Semitic literature as well as forged banknotes were said to be the principal output of these presses. A large part of the expense of running the anti-Semitic movement in Roumania was paid for with forged notes, it is alleged.

Professor Popovici and Major Mageritescu, two principals in the counterfeiting band, have been taken into custody.
